Synapsa-Med sp. z o.o. logo

Synapsa-Med sp. z o.o.

Among our sensory weighted product line, we can distinguish blankets for both children and adults, vests, and collars. The weighted blanket, classified as a medical device, supports the production of serotonin and melatonin through deep pressure. This contributes to an improved mood, better sleep, and overall relaxation. Utilizing the weighted blanket for both daytime therapy and nighttime sleep, users experience increased restfulness, relaxation, and a heightened sense of security. The blankets apply deep pressure to sensory receptors (proprioceptive system) within the body. The deep pressure helps relax the body, akin to the comforting embrace of a loved one. Visit Online.

The vibration and music come through the pillow and create a unique sound experience that has been shown to positively affect our ability to get to sleep and stay asleep.
